Notes/Commercial Description:
Allagash Curieux was the first foray into barrel aging. Curieux is made by aging our Tripel Ale in Jim Beam bourbon barrels for eight weeks in our cold cellars. The aged beer is then blended back with a portion of fresh Tripel. The resulting beer is soft with coconut and vanilla notes, with hints of bourbon.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

appearance - pours a crisp light golden amber with an inch of white foamy head with pretty decent retention.

aroma- strong bourbon, tart candy like fruit, citrus, vanilla, I could get lost in this for a while.

taste - The bourbon and vanilla from the oak aging hit hard at first then layers of citrus, clove, yeasty banana. Nice light hop bit at the end. There is another flavor I can't nail that seems somewhat malty that I am not enjoying. Can't find the words.

overall - Very delicious and interesting. There is again a mystery flavor that I cannot distinguish but this is absolutely a worthwhile treat.
